The World's First Joint-Building Collagen Peptides
Trusted by Professional Athletes, Members of the Armed Forces, and Everyday Fitness Enthusiasts
How it Works: Cutting Edge Peptide Technology for Joint Repair
Collagen Synthesis™ combines two patented, clinically proven sources of Bioactive Collagen Peptides with other key nutrients involved in connective tissue metabolism and repair.
Unlike generic collagen supplements that may be assimilated into bodily tissues at random, the peptides in Collagen Synthesis™ have been optimized specifically for cartilage, tendon, and ligament metabolism.
Never has there been a more precise, science-backed way to give your joints the raw materials they need to fuel collagen production and formation.
The Top 6 Proven Benefits of Collagen Synthesis™
Not only are the ingredients in Collagen Synthesis™proven to help you build stronger connective tissue structures along with exercise, they also help reduce activity-related joint pain, strengthen tendons and ligaments, and improve joint mobility.
The power of Collagen Synthesis™ comes from the unique peptide profiles in the patented ingredients Fortigel® and Tendoforte®.
It also contains three other nutrients that work synergistically with these collagen peptides to support collagen fibril formation and connective tissue health.
Published research shows the ingredients in Collagen Synthesis™ may help you accomplish these goals:
1. Build and maintain cartilage mass.
In an animal study performed at the Collagen Research Institute in Germany, Fortigel® ingestion led to significant increases in cartilage tissue metabolism and accumulation.1
Studies of athletes and aging adults mirrored these findings.
One of them was a 48-week placebo-controlled study performed at Tufts Medical Center in cooperation with Harvard University. The study confirmed through MRI scans that ingesting 10 g of Fortigel® effectively increased connective tissue mass and cartilage growth in patients with knee pain.2
2. Strengthen tendons and ligaments.
A 2018 study published in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine found that subjects who consumed Tendoforte® along with their ankle rehabilitation program saw greater improvements in joint strength as measured by the Cumberland Ankle Instability Tool (CAIT).
Researchers believe the increased collagen production improves the quality of collagen fibril formation, giving connective tissue more tensile strength.3
3. Improve joint stability, mobility, and resilience.
The 2018 JSSM study also found that athletes who took Tendoforte® were less likely to suffer the same injury again. This led researchers to conclude that, “the reduction in the re-injury rate of ankle sprains in the follow-up period suggests that these findings have clinical relevance.”3
4. Reduce activity-related joint pain.
A 2008 study of 147 athletes conducted at Penn State University demonstrated that the use of 5 g of Fortigel® decreased activity-related joint pain by 40.3% more than a placebo.4
5. Help preserve bone mass.
A 2018 study published in the journal Nutrients showed that post-menopausal women who consumed Bioactive Collagen Peptides experienced “increased bone formation and reduced bone degradation.”5 Longtime customer Paula Schwartz (see video above) can testify to this!
6. Improve lean body composition.
Studies of young adults and elderly men have shown that supplementing with the ingredients in Collagen Synthesis™ (with strength training) increases strength and muscle mass, reduces fat mass, and improves overall body composition.6, 7, 8
Your joints deserve the most research-backed collagen available.
That's precisely why some of the most elite athletes in the world and members of the U.S. armed forces use Collagen Synthesis™ to recover, rebuild, and protect their joints.
You demand a lot from your body. And often it's your joints (not muscles) that fall behind from over-training and under-recovering.
You already know this — but when it comes to sports nutrition, your performance bottleneck has nothing to do with stimulants or muscle-pumping agents.
The real bottleneck is your joints.
Take care of your joints, and everything else follows.
So while everyone else is obsessing over the next heart-pounding stimulant or muscle-pumping supplement...
You’ll be focused on what really matters:
Building strong, mobile, bulletproof joints that stand the test of time.
How to Use Collagen Synthesis™
Mix one unflavored scoop into any beverage or meal once daily.
Suggested Use: For best results, consume one serving 30 minutes before exercising.
Pro-Tip: Add one scoop to your favorite blended protein shake for a joint-building boost. Because Collagen Synthesis™ is unflavored and mixes easily, you won't even taste it.
Fortigel® is a collagen peptide that has been effectively ‘cut’ to match the receptor sites within cartilage tissues. When consumed, it helps stimulate chondrocytes — the cells responsible for cartilage maintenance.9
Collagen Synthesis contains 5 grams of Fortigel®— the clinically supported dosage for supporting cartilage maintenance.
Tendoforte® has a molecular weight that matches the receptor sites in tendons and ligaments. It helps produce more fibroblasts. These are the cells responsible for synthesizing new collagen and maintaining the structural framework of connective tissue.9
Fibroblasts also play a crucial role in the tissue healing process, making Tendoforte® especially effective at improving the strength and stability of tendons and ligaments.
The clinically-supported dosage of Tendoforte® is 5 grams (taken before exercise).
Supplementing with Vitamin C supports optimal collagen formation and reduces oxidative damage from exercise-induced tissue stress.10, 11
In cases of Vitamin C deficiency, collagen fibers cannot repair properly and lack adhesion strength. More importantly, your body can’t form or store collagen without Vitamin C present, making it a crucial cofactor in the collagen formation process.
A 2019 pilot study published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism showed that taking Vitamin C in conjunction with collagen peptides before training doubled collagen synthesis rates in the exercising joints.12
The only problem is Vitamin C can be rough on your stomach when taken before exercise. That’s why we included 120 mg (133% Daily Value) of easily-digested, Buffered Vitamin C in each serving of Collagen Synthesis.
When you take hyaluronic acid in conjunction with collagen peptides, you get a synergistic joint-building response. That’s because hyaluronic acid works with collagen to provide a moisture-rich environment within joint structures.13 This enables collagen fibers to stretch without breaking, improving their resilience and reducing fiber tears during the critical tissue remodeling phase of tissue recovery.
This is a vital part of the rebuilding process, as fragile new collagen fibers need time to stretch and align properly without breaking down.
Studies show supplementing with hyaluronic acid:
• Provides structural support for collagen-producing fibroblasts.14
• Improves synovial fluid effusion in joints and reduces joint discomfort.15
• Improves joint strength (52 mg of hyaluronic acid helped healthy subjects with mild joint discomfort improve their knee strength).16
Collagen Synthesis contains 80 mg of hyaluronic acid to bolster the collagen-rebuilding process.
Orthosilicic acid (ch-OSA) is a highly absorbable form of the mineral silicon. Silicon plays a pivotal role in collagen synthesis within joints, bone mineralization, and overall immune health. Even though silicon is one of the most abundant minerals on the planet, most people don’t get enough.
That’s because it doesn’t accumulate in the body. Multiple studies have shown that silicon supplementation improves joint, bone, and even skin health.17
Studies indicate that combining ch-OSA with collagen peptides may stimulate collagen production and connective tissue repair more than either ingredient would on its own.18
Because ch-OSA appears to support tissue remodeling when combined with collagen, we included 10 mg of choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid (ch-OSA) in Collagen Synthesis. This is the most bioavailable form of the mineral and the most targeted method of supporting collagen maintenance, rebuilding, and longevity.
As you can see, Collagen Synthesis is much more than just another collagen protein powder. In addition to patented collagen peptides designed to target specific joint structures, we also included key supportive nutrients that further bolster the absorption and utilization process.
So, instead of merely taking undifferentiated collagen protein (and only seeing marginal improvements in joint health and recovery times) — you can give your joints exactly what they need. You won’t find this level of targeted therapeutic nutrition anywhere besides inside Collagen Synthesis.

Mix one scoop into any beverage or meal once daily. For best results, consume one serving 30 minutes before exercising.
Q: Can I take Collagen Synthesis™ on days I don't work out?
Absolutely. Just mix one scoop into any liquid or beverage.
Q: Can I mix it into my coffee, or will hot coffee damage the collagen?
Yes, you can. Coffee will NOT damage the collagen peptides. The initial degradation temperature of collagen is 572° F. Coffee is typically brewed to around 185° F.
Q: Should I take undenatured Type II collagen or collagen protein? What's the difference?
Both are effective. And both can be taken together depending on your goals.
Type II collagen produces a novel effect in the body in that it regulates the immune response responsible for inter-cartilaginous inflammation. This supports the overall healing process and helps manage joint discomfort.
Collagen peptides (aka Collagen Protein) are made primarily of Types I and III, which have different mechanisms and effects. They help kick-start the machinery that builds new collagen and optimizes tissue formation.
Type II primarily protects against and helps with inflammation. Types I and III (what's in Collagen Synthesis) primarily serve as building agents.
Q: Is collagen a low-quality protein?
Collagen's low protein quality score compared to other forms, like whey, egg, etc. is irrelevant.
The mechanism of action of Collagen Synthesis depends on the cell signaling process that takes place when you consume it... Not the amino acid profile.
Your body's response to detecting collagen in the bloodstream is what serves as the main driver of new collagen production and formation.
